Have you ever someone and instantly adored them? That’s how I felt when I met Dr. Jeanette Graf during this last New York Fashion Week. She is quite possibly the warmest celebrity dermatologist I have ever met (and I have met many). She gives excellent beauty advice and really good hugs too!
ABOUT DR. GRAF
I quickly forgot this lovely woman I started chatting with like I had known for years is a distinguished dermatologist, groundbreaking peptide researcher, inner and outer beauty expert, best-selling author, hands-on creator of high-performing anti-aging skin care, go-to media resource for cutting-edge expertise on dermatology, cosmetic injectables and skin science. Dr. Jeannette Graf does it all doesn’t she? There is no pretense either. Not only is she a board certified, clinical and research dermatologist, she is also an educator and Assistant Clinical Professor of Dermatology at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, where she has been recognized for excellence in education by being awarded with the Mount Sinai Medical Center Teacher of the Year Award. Additionally she has been recognized by her peers with the Doctors’ Choice Award in Dermatology and has been selected as a Leading Physician of the World.
Dr. Graf’s understanding that truly beautiful skin must occur from the inside out, and that balancing internal alkalinity (pH balance) is the key to optimal health, vitality and beautiful, glowing skin, led her to write her best-selling book, Stop Aging, Start Living (Crown, Fall 2007), and teaches simple ways to achieve alkalinity through her revolutionary two-week pH-balancing diet.
Prior to completing her Residency in Dermatology at the New York University Medical Center, Dr. Graf earned her medical degree from the State University of New York – School of Medicine at Buffalo (that’s why I love her, I’m from Buffalo!). Committed to research and the science of natural ingredients and new ingredient technologies from an early point in her career, Dr. Graf was a research fellow and protégé of George Martin, Ph.D., lab chief and one of the most highly respected scientists in the world, at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
While at NIH, where her colleagues referred to her as “Doctor Peptide” based on her groundbreaking research on peptides, Dr. Graf received an award for Outstanding Achievement from the National Institutes of Health, in addition to obtaining a NIH patent for her research on peptides in 1987. Dr. Graf is also noted for discovering a specific peptide responsible for cell attachment, which is able to inhibit and block melanoma metastases.
Recognizing the tremendous need for proven, effective, dermatology-strength skin care available without a prescription, Dr. Graf declared war on aging skin (thank God, someone needed to!) by creating her own peptide-driven anti-aging skin care line, combining the highest levels of active ingredients with the most effective delivery systems for the highest level of performance. Her products are truly amazing and I can attest since I use them. Her products are not cost prohibitive and even better deals can be found at HSN where most of her products are sold.

Dr. Graf allowed me to pick a 3 (a trifecta if you will) of my favorite “can’t live without” anti-aging skincare products from her line to give away to one lucky winner! They include her:
Dr. Jeannette Graf, M.D. Collagen Cleanser – While this cleanser is for all skin types it’s perfection for aging skin. It’s formulated to gently remove makeup (even eye makeup), oil, dirt and other impurities and leaves your skin feeling clean, not stripped.
Dr. Jeannette Graf, M.D. Triple-Action Peptide Eye Creme – I am always on the hunt for a thick eye cream that absorbs into those fine lines and wrinkles we all dread. This one helps minimize free-radical assault, conceals the look of redness and minimizes dark circles. It actually works to improve the appearance of aging around the eye area with continued use! I love this eye cream like no other.
Dr. Jeannette Graf, M.D. Skin Rejuvenation Exfoliating and Firming Pads with Lactic Acid and BHA – These little pads are life-changing! They easily exfoliate dead skin cells and help give your skin a smoother, firmer and more conditioned look. Pores look minimized and skin looks brighter, firmer and younger!
